Newt scrambles for money

The former U.S. House Speaker is traveling to California on Monday in search of campaign-sustaining cash. The state will grant more convention delegates than any other in its June 5 primary, and Gingrich will have a smattering of public events, but the central purpose of the trip is to raise money: He will hold eight closed-door fundraisers in the span of three days, according to campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond.

In the interview Gingrich said he also has fundraisers planned in Texas, Tennessee and New York, and a trip to Georgia at weeks end will include fundraisers. Gingrich is attempting to build a nationwide campaign ahead of the crucial March 6 Super Tuesday contests, when Georgia and nine other states cast their votes.

Im currently uncommitted, he (Brint Ryan, a former Perry backer and CEO of Dallas tax services firm Ryan Inc.) wrote in an email. Im not sure if I will re-engage before the primary or not. Im very disappointed that Rick Perry, the person with the best record and the strongest experience, was not successful."

We also proved back in the summer we could run a campaign remarkably inexpensively, he said, referencing the time when his senior staff departed en masse and the indebted campaign was left for dead. Both Santorum and I have gone through periods with virtually no money. ---Newt, the free TV time (the debates) are over. Soooooorrrrrry.
